    Isaiah 62 Fast for Israel

    I don't know if any of you have heard about this, but there's a call to pray and fast for Israel in May, culminating with 100,000,000 joining together on MAY 28.

    This is going to be world changing.

    International House of Prayer


    Join Us For This Momentous Fast

    IHOPKC's leadership team is responding to the Lord in light of the 40-year anniversary of the 1983 solemn assembly by calling a 21-day fast May 7–28, 2023. We will focus all of our prayer sets in the Global Prayer Room on Jesus' purposes for Israel and the Jewish people. This fast will culminate on Pentecost Sunday, May 28, when we will be joining 100 million intercessors to pray for Israel as part of the global prayer day for Israel.

    How You Can Participate

    Join us in the Global Prayer Room in Kansas City or tune in to the webstream.

    We are believing for 1 million to join us on the 21-day fast in May and for 100 million to join us on May 28 that many more millions would be marked for God's purposes.

    Three Friday nights in May at 6pm (May 12, 19, 26), our Encounter God Service will be focused on contending for God's prophetic purposes for Israel and equipping our spiritual family to partner with God's prophetic purposes in Israel in this hour. We will share prophetic words, events, and messaging along with updates and more. Worship will begin at 6pm.

    The Children's Equipping Center will be open for ages 1–12 from 5:45pm to 8pm.

    (NOTE: We are putting a three-week "pause" on Mike Bickle and Stuart Greaves' Friday 7:30pm EGS course on John 13–17 during the fast).

    I think this is the official page:

    Isaiah 62 Fast – A Global Solemn Assembly

    Join over 1 million believers who will engage in prayer for Israel for at least one hour a day for 21 days (May 7-28) for the increase of God's salvation promises and plans for Jerusalem and Israel. Some will pray alone and others will pray with 2 or more (Mt. 18:20)—virtually or in-person—in their home, office, dorm, or at their church, etc.

    A collaboration of several thousand ministries—including Lou Engle, Jason Hubbard, Mike Bickle—are calling 1 million believers to participate in a global solemn assembly (May 7-28)to fast in various ways and to pray for the Lord's purposes for Israel AND to ask Him to raise up 100 million intercessors for Israel according to His promise in Isaiah 62:6 to sovereignly "set," "appoint," or "mark" intercessors who will remind the Lord of His promises for Jerusalem until Jesus returns. Isaiah 62:6 is an end-time promise that is now escalating across the earth.

    6On your walls, O Jerusalem, I have appointed [set, KJV] watchmen; all day and all night they will never keep silent. You [intercessors] who remind the Lord, take no rest for yourselves; 7And give Him no rest until He makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth [at Jesus' return]. (Isa. 62:6-7, NAS)

    In the first 3 weeks of announcing this fast on March 7, over 1,000,000 are set to participate in various ways. By May 7, far more than 1 million who will engage in this 21-day fast in various ways (some will fast on water, some on vegetables, or juices, or taking one meal a day, and some will "fast media" instead of food, etc.).

    Believers hold various eschatological positions. The Isaiah 62 website does not address any eschatological position. It invites believers of all positions to pray 21 days for Jerusalem and Israel.

    The IHOPKC prayer room is committed to worship and pray non-stop 24/7 for 3 weeks (May 7-28) for Israel. Over 300 on the IHOPKC full-time ministry staff have personally committed to be in our prayer room for 6-12 hours a day for all 21 days. I am grateful for their response to lay aside many of their normal responsibilities to do this! The IHOPKC prayer room is only one of many HUBs engaging in this. For more info on how your church or ministry can be a HUB see isaiah62fast.com or the Isaiah 62 Fast Facebook page.

    The isaiah62fast.com website identifies churches, ministries, Bible studies, youth groups, etc. that desire to be a "HUB" that provides ministry resources, regular communication, etc. in mobilizing others for 21 days (May 7-28). If you want your church or ministry info listed on isaiah62fast.com,then click on the link for more information.

    Israel's national repentance (Act 3:19) and confession that Jesus is Messiah (Mt. 23:39) is deeply connected to Jesus' second coming, the Great Commission, and "life from the dead" for the whole earth (Rom. 11:15).

    This will be the first time in history that far more than 1 million will continue 24 hours a day for 21 days in praying for God's promises for Israel. The uniqueness of this prayer initiative is itself a sign of the times and an acceleration of God's "set time for a generation yet to be created" to engage together in His purposes for Israel (Ps. 102:13, 18).

    13You will...have mercy on Zion [Jerusalem]; the time to favor her, Yes, the set time, has come... 18This will be written for the generation to come, that a people yet to be created may praise the Lord. (Ps. 102:13-18)

    This 21-day fast is a "global Esther moment" (Esth. 4:14-16) that will be a significant down payment for the final ultimate global Esther moment when millions of believers will engage in prayer, speak out boldly for God's purposes for Israel (as seen in Scripture), and stand with Israel as anti-Semitism increases until Jesus returns (Zech. 14:1-5). This fast is also important for today as Israel faces several very significant conflicts.

    14"For if you remain silent [unresponsive] at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place...who knows if you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?" 15Then Esther told them to reply to Mordecai: 16"Go, gather all the Jews...and fast for me...My maids and I will fast ...so I will go to the king...and if I perish, I perish!" (Esth. 4:14-16)

    ISRAEL INTERCESSORY PRAYER March 31-April 7, 2023


    1. ISAIAH 62 GLOBAL SOLEMN ASSEMBLY 21-DAY FAST - May 7–28

    God has given various people the number 100 million intercessors over the years in prophetic encounters.

    In the upcoming Isaiah 62 Fast, thousands of ministries will host daily prayer meetings with fasting in mobilizing 1,0000,000 intercessors to pray for Israel AND for the Spirit to mark 100 million Intercessors on May 28 to see God's heart for Israel.

    Why do we so value praying for Jerusalem and Israel? Israel's national repentance (Act 3:19) and confession that Jesus is Messiah (Mt. 23:39) is deeply connected to Jesus' second coming and to "life from the dead" for the whole earth (Rom. 11:15). It is believed that this 21-day global Isaiah 62 Fast will be catalytic in sparking an acceleration of the conversation about Israel in the body of Christ across the nations. This fast will end on Pentecost Sunday, May 28. On this day, 100 million believers will be praying for Israel together in response to God's call. It is believed that this will be the first time in history that thousands will continue 24 hours a day for 21 days in praying for God's promises for Israel. The uniqueness of this prayer initiative is itself a sign of the times and an acceleration of God's "set time for a generation yet to be created" (Ps.102:13, 18).

    This 21-day fast is a "global Esther moment" (Esth. 4:14-16) that will be a significant down payment for the final ultimate global Esther moment when 100 million intercessors will engage in prayer, speak out boldly for God's purposes for Israel (as seen in Scripture), and stand with Israel as anti-Semitism increases until Jesus returns (Zech.14:1-5). This fast is important as Israel today faces several significant conflicts.

    In this fast we exalt the supremacy of Jesus, focus on the connection of God's blessing on Jerusalem to fulfilling the Great Commission. We can do so much more together in the "spirit of John 17:21-23" unity.

    I'm having trouble understanding the lack of response to this. Am I the only one excited about it? Am I the only one whose spirit leaps at the very thought of this happening???

    Wow! They are being rather stealthy, aren't they? Haven't heard of this at all here in Jerusalem.

    I don't know about stealthy because how do you gather support from 100M people across the world in a stealthy manner?

    I just realized this was a project headed by Mike Bickel. We love the folks at the Jerusalem House of Prayer and wish them success.

    The intercessory world is very excited about this and my friends and I are definitely going to be involved!

    This is the first I've heard of it, and I am excited about it! For the past few years, I've felt more of a burden to pray for Israel. A group of us gather on Zoom on the 2 thru 4 Friday, and in person on the first Friday every month. I am going to present this to them and hopefully, we can figure out how to join them. What a time this should be!

    Thanks for sharing!
    When your praise match your prayers, the answer will come.

    I think some reasons why there hasn't been much response to the Israel prayer - which btw is a wonderful thing.

    Christians are far more busy in their lives today than ever before in just normal life and so will be very selective in their prayer lives
    They also may be actively involved in their own church programs and prayer initiatives.
    With the internet Christians are exposed to many areas of need and may be involved in supporting and praying in these other areas which they support on the internet.
    There are other groups who also are involved in worldwide prayer - my city has been chosen as a major place of prayer this coming October by a international prayer group - I have been invited
    to be a part of the organizing network - still haven't decide if I will but thinking about it. There is an IHOP person from the US coming to speak.
    Some prayer/intercessory groups have a specific focus like parts of Asia or Africa.
    Sometimes we just don't hear about what many other prayer groups are doing - I had not heard about this Israel prayer time
    There could be other reasons which I haven't mentioned.

    Needless to say prayer for Israel is crucial and hopefully those called and prompted by the Holy Spirit will participate in praying for Israel and seeing breakthroughs.
